Get Your Paycheck Sent Directly to Your ENS Address

We're on a mission to enable the crypto community to live natively in crypto — and this starts with getting your paycheck in crypto in any primary wallet of your choice.

Here at OnJuno, we’re on a mission to enable the crypto community to live natively in crypto — and this starts with getting your paycheck in crypto in any primary wallet of your choice. We’re working at the intersection of banking and crypto to enable anyone in the US to get paid in crypto. 

And today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve integrated ENS directly into our product to enable our users to receive their paycheck directly to their ENS address. At the moment, ENS is the most widely-used blockchain naming standard.

Before this integration, people had to manually enter the external wallet address where they wanted to receive their paycheck. This involved copy-pasting the wallet address from their primary wallet, filling the process with friction.

Our ENS integration now makes it seamless to link the primary wallet address by entering human-readable ENS usernames. ENS has a vibrant and passionate community of 190k ENS owners and 472k ENS usernames — and it’s growing. They embraced crypto early and can now finally unbank themselves by taking their paycheck in crypto.

How it Works

  1. Create an account: Sign up with referral code “ENSONJUNO” and create an account with OnJuno in a few minutes. Once you get yout account and routing number, you’re instantly eligible to get paid in crypto and also earn a $50 bonus in ETH when you receive your first direct deposit.

  2. Set up your crypto paycheck: Enter how much of your paycheck you’d like to receive in crypto, and select from a basket of cryptocurrencies. Choose to get every paycheck directly in an external wallet, enter the ENS username, and voila! We parse the username and autofill your primary wallet address. It’s that easy.

  3. Make the switch: As a final step, set up a direct deposit by automatically logging in to your payroll. We have over 90% coverage in the US. And get this: employees from Uber, Amazon, Microsoft, Lyft, Doordash already get paid in crypto via OnJuno. If your company or payroll provider isn’t available, you can also set up your direct deposit manually via the direct deposit form. 

We’re passionate about our mission, because we’ve seen the results for ourselves. Take Olaf Carlson-Wee, who runs the world's biggest crypto hedge fund, Polychain Capital. 

Olaf started off as the first employee at Coinbase and was paid in Bitcoin for 3 years, choosing to receive his $50,000 annual starting salary in BTC when a single coin was about $20-$30. He received a dollar-denominated salary, converted to Bitcoin at the time of payment. 

Today, Olaf runs the world. And OnJuno is backed by Polychain Capital — empowering us on our mission to enable anyone to get paid in crypto the way Olaf did. 

It is, of course, never too late to get paid in crypto. 

If you’d received $1,000 of your monthly paycheck in Ethereum since 2018, it could be worth $591,711 today.

That’s ~16x of the equivalent cash paycheck.
